No Minimum Booking Numbers

Being a solo artist allows me to focus on small bridal parties and solo brides. I don’t charge any extra fees because you don’t have a wedding party. I love working elopements and intimate weddings where I can really work with you to provide a tailored luxury experience. 

I am happy to work alongside other providers and photographers to make your day as streamlined as possible.

WHY DO BRIDES CHOOSE ELLEN MUNRO FOR THEIR WEDDING MAKEUP AND HAIR?

NATURAL MAKEUP SPECIALIST

By specialising in natural bridal makeup, I strive to bring out the best in my brides without overshadowing or masking their own beauty.

A lot of brides worry that the makeup necessary for flawless bridal photos will be heavy and feel uncomfortable, but by using high quality products and proper techniques, I can assure you this is not the case.

Many of my brides do not usually wear makeup and I keep their level of comfort in the forefront of my mind when selecting suitable products.

MAKEUP AND HAIR IN ONE

Getting both hair and makeup done by the same person cuts down on the amount of bookings you have to manage and people to coordinate on an already stressful day.

By offering both hair and makeup, I am able to create a cohesive look for you and there is no need to worry about conflicting hair and makeup schedules, excessive travel fees, or long wait times between services.

FULLY PERSONALISED SERVICE

I work with you to help create your vision – whatever that may be! I carry a wide range of products and can mix and customise to ensure we achieve the perfect colours and finish for your skin. I cater for all skin and hair types and carry products for everyone.

No two brides are alike, so neither are their hair and makeup needs! By working with you I can tailor the perfect look to bring out your best and make your dream wedding look a reality.

MY EXCLUSIVITY GUARANTEE

When you book your wedding with me you can be rest assured you will be my only bride for the day and that your booking will always take priority!

Wedding days are monumental occasions and I work hard to ensure I can give you my full attention. This means not having other brides to rush off to, or multiple weddings to confuse details of. This also means I remain flexible and can accomodate any changes to your on the day schedule that may arise.

bridal FAQ

Many brides are unsure of what to expect from a wedding makeup artist and hair stylist. I have created this page to answer some of your questions and to help guide you when choosing your artist. If your question is not answered here, or you would like to discuss any aspect of your bridal makeup and hair needs please get in touch!

Do i need a hair and makeup trial?

While a trial is not always necessary I do advise one if you are unsure of or unfamiliar with makeup application and styles. This can help you to feel more relaxed and reassured on the big day. It is also a good idea if you have any skin concerns or sensitivities.

A trial is also a great opportunity to meet and discuss the details of the wedding day!

How long should I leave for my trial?

I recommend leaving 2-3 hours for your trial. This allows us to preview your wedding makeup look and hairstyle with enough time to make minor alterations. It also give us time to chat about the details of the day and work out your on the day schedule!

when should i have my trial?

It is advisable to have your trial 4-6 weeks out from the wedding. This is close enough to the date to ensure there are no major changes, but with enough time to make any neccasary adjustments. A lot of my brides opt to have their trials before their engagement photos or bridal shower.

what if i can’t have a trial?

Although a trial can be a great thing, it is also not compulsory. With the rise of elopements and destination weddings it is very common for brides to not be available for a trial prior to the wedding. In this instance, it is a good idea to send through some reference images of hair and makeup styles you like as well as photos of yourself. We are able to discuss any concerns you may have prior to the wedding date.

How long should I schedule for my wedding day hair and makeup?

I recommend leaving 1.5 hours per person for hair and makeup. My solo bridal packages allocate 2-3 hours to allow time for hair and makeup application, getting ready photos, final touch ups and placement of the veil.

I work with my brides to prepare a hair and makeup run sheet to ensure there are no delays.

how do i prepare for my appointment?

I ask that you be ready for your appointment with a makeup free face. For best results, please cleanse and exfoliate the morning of your appointment. You may apply a lightweight moisturiser and SPF, but please do not use facial oils or serums the morning of your appointment.

Please wash your hair the day prior to your appointment. Shampoo twice, making sure to scrub the scalp to remove all build up. Apply conditioner to mid lengths and ends and rinse.

Please blow dry or air dry your hair. No hot styling tools (flat irons or curlers) are to be used between washing your hair and your appointment. It is best if you can keep your hair out. If this is not possible, please lightly secure in a low ponytail.

Ellen is a true professional who I would highly recommend to anyone.
